MIC may have breached party constitution

The party's Youth secretary has lodged a report with Registrar of Societies on the readmission of three sacked party members.

SHAH ALAM: Three sacked MIC members are back in the fold but their readmission may have breached the party constitution.

MIC Youth secretary C Sivarraajh said this could have been unintentional but he has still gone ahead and lodged a report with the Selangor Registrar of Societies (ROS) claiming the party’s central working committee (CWC) may have unintentionally breached the party constitution .

The three who were readmitted are former Gerakan Anti-Samy Vellu (GAS) members – V Mugilan, KP Samy and G Kumar Aamaan.

“Article 61.5 of the party constitution clearly states that a sacked member can only apply to be re-admitted after two years of the date of expulsion,”said Sivarraajh who claimed to be acting in his personal capacity.

The three leaders were sacked by former MIC president S Samy Vellu last year for criticising him. The trio then formed GAS to oust Samy Vellu from the party.

MIC president G Palanivel readmitted the leaders into the party last Saturday, a decision that was also endorsed by the CWC.

Sivarraajh said he was not going against party leadership, adding that he was willing to retract his complaint if the party can justify its decision under the party constitution.

“Though I understand that Palanivel and the CWC are trying to strengthen the party with this move, the decision must be in line with the party constitution.

“Besides, this is the same CWC that upheld the trio’s expulsion last year and now they are readmitting them,” he said. Sivarraajh said it was not his intention to tarnish the party’s image.

Taking a swipe at Mugilan, Sivarraajh said the former GAS coordinator had a hidden agenda in his announcement that he would contest for the MIC Youth chief’s post in the next party polls.

“The CWC brought him back to unite the party. His latest announcement clearly shows he is not interested in strengthening the party,” alleged Sivarraajh.

Yesterday, Mugilan, who is also MIC deputy Youth chief, announced that he intends to contest for the Youth chief post after the general election. The post is currently held by T Mohan.
